When asked for a recommendation for an inexpensive convertible car seat, one of the biggest go-to options are typically the Safety 1st Guide 65 vs Evenflo SureRide (also the Evenflo Titan 65). Both of these seats are comparably priced and will last quite a while both rear and forward facing. Even lower priced options can be found in the comparison between the Cosco Scenera NEXT and Cosco Apt50.
Recently, Graco has released several new convertible seats to the market, adding a wider array of convertible and multi-use restraint options to its lineup.

Graco introduced the Nautilus 3-in-1 forward facing combination seat in 2007. The Nautilus quickly became a trusted, well-priced staple in that category of seats.
The Nautilus harnesses from 20-65 pounds, then converts to a high-back booster, then to a backless booster.
The Cosco Apt40 has been around for some time now and made a name for itself as a great budget seat. It had a major limitation in that once outgrown rear facing, it was outgrown forward facing as well. The new Cosco Apt50 has fixed that issue. Let’s see how the Apt50 stacks up its predecessor.
